President’s Opening Remarks - Annual Meeting.

Who do we have running for office, who might we have, how do we structure going forward? According to Tom, by-laws are unclear as to how many members the board needs to have. Wants to explore ways to make it more efficient, which could mean having less board members.

 

Secretary’s Report

Vote to accept Secretary’s report from July as is - unanimous.

 

Treasurer’s report

Big entry fees from the Junior Olympic meets. Stephen is 90% sure we’ll come out ahead on those. A good membership check came in from the youth enrollment from those two meets. Membership is approx. up to 5150. Vote on report tabled until the next meeting.

 

Masters T&F

Masters Throws nationals were held at Holy Cross over the weekend. Record number of entries (97 in total). Hosted by Twilight Throwers, who broke even on the meet without touching the $1,500 in seed money that the association floated their way. Approximately 10 national records were set.
